This type was used to build up the V-1 launch ramp.
You can see in on Back &white photo,that next to the ramp on either side layes a rail track .
I only have found one picture of the montagebock, i went with the TAKOM V-1 launch Model dimensions and the one picture .
This is what i got .
Entirely made from Plastic.
The woodgrain was created by scraping a Tamiya razorsaw over the length of the plastic ,
I used nuts and bolds from MENG.
Made a sleepers and rail jig to work from .
Black primer to create shadow for the hard to reach sand colour (wooden parts)
And all sealed with Mr hobby Flat varnish ready for pin washes .
Dark brown odourless turpentine wood grain wash.
And a redish brown wash on the steel parts,when dry it
will be wiped off an the sealed with varnish.
Thinking off spraying the Nagelkran green and maybe some other camo coulor , and start chipping / sctatching the beams.
(Because i think a light coloured tall thing would stand out next / in a wooded area.
Wash is wiped off,it stained the Acrylic sand colour nicely .
still needs some light dry brushing .
Fantastic work and looks totally realistic with those finishes you’ve done. Will really add to the complete picture once it’s all built up
Looks great! Fantastic wood grain effect!
Looking great, will be following along for the rest.
I am scratching it in sections, an keeping it just green
it looks like this thread is in the wrong section,
would / could you be so kind and move it …to one of the WW2 axis sections ?
Beauty work Piet , nicely done !!!
First stage of painting is done,
Chains are to short ,unfortunately I didn’t have any longer lengths left.
Superb build on that piece. Very well done indeed. Painting and weathering on the wood is so good.
